(I have never tried this recipe, and cannot tell whether it is a
good one or not. If you try it, let me know.--R.B.)
2 c. cubed cooked sweet potato
1/2 c. chopped green pepper
1/2 c. chopped celery
3 scallions, sliced thin
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
2 T. mayonnaise
1/4 c. yogurt
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/4 t. salt
(nubbin of ginger, thumb-tip size)
Place sweet potato, green pepper, celery, scallions, and walnuts
in a small salad bowl.
Stir together mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon zest and juice (about 3 T.),
and salt. If you're fond of fresh ginger, try it in this dish:
peel it, cut in three pieces, and press the pieces in a garlic
press to extract the juice. (It will well up in the upper part of
the press--pour from there, loosen with a fork, and squeeze again.)
Mix the juice into the dressing, adding to taste. Combine with sweet
potato mixture and adjust salt and lemon juice to taste.
Makes 3 cups, to serve 4.
